New Year's Eve off Lafayette Street

While this cartoon was being inked, the good news was reported that Polar Beverages would pick up the fireworks tab for First Night. Uncle Timmy and yours truly raise a diet birch beer--with Madame Rhubarb I.P.A. chaser--to the Crowleys for making New Year's literally sparkle. And bestest to you in 2010!

Sing along with . . .

Speaking of celestial, the Johnny Mercer Centennial Celebration is tonight at 7 at Nick's, 124 Millbury St. Review last week's post for unsolicited testimonial and phone number for reservations. As the good Captain Beefheart would say, "It's a keeper!"

"Mommy! Santa's outside Cicero's!"

Reminder: stART at the Station is today from noon to 5 p.m. at Union Station. Be seeing you at the Marketplace on the second floor!
Bulletin: Nick's Bar and Restaurant, 124 Millbury St., the finest eatery and drinkery across all latitudes, will present a reprise of its Johnny Mercer Centennial Celebration, featuring Frank Racette, Bobby Gadoury, Dan Burke, Niki Luparelli, Geoff Oehling, Tom Spears, Trina Vargas and special guests, next Sunday, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m. Having attended the initial Celebration Nov. 28, Bernadette and I heartily attest that the event was, to employ Duke Ellington's highest praise, beyond category. That initial event sold out fast, so reservations are strongly encouraged by calling (508) 753-4030.
